Four Seasons under construction in Nashville

A week after introducing plans to build locations in Minneapolis and San Francisco, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has begun construction on its first Tennessee project, the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Nashville. The Congress Group, a Boston-based real estate investment and development firm, and AECOM Capital, the investment arm of AECOM, co-own and are co-developing the hotel.

The hotel, designed with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certification in mind, will include 236 guestrooms, 143 private residences and a spa. It will be located in the heart of Nashville’s downtown area, adjacent to the Cumberland River and within a block of the city’s SoBro neighborhood.

AECOM Hunt is leading the hotel’s construction process. Having wrapped up demolition work in May, the company will continue to work on the hotel’s foundation throughout 2019, with the project aiming to go vertical in early 2020.

Numerous firms will be involved in the hotel’s design process, including: SCB as project architect, HOK as interior designer of the residences and amenity spaces, Marzipan as interior design of the hotel and public spaces, Barge Design Group as civil engineer, Cosentini Associates as mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer, MKA as structural engineer and TTL as geotechnical and environmental engineer.
